A: Not legally and why would you want one. Bankruptcy is a very complex area of law and a significant number of things can go wrong in what you might consider a simple Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Only licensed attorneys are licensed to practice law. Choosing a cheap attorney can often lead to expensive mistakes and/or irreparable harm, so just save yourself some aggravation and money by picking the best attorney you can afford. Never forget that a cheap lawyer is rarely ever good and a good attorney is rarely if ever cheap. A non-attorney engaging in practing law is a criminal.
